My favorite thing to do is experiment. I love just finding out what happens. There was a technique I read about in Maggie Grey's Workshop on the Web a while ago. It used paper towel as the base. It got me thinking about using fabric as the base as then it would be sturdy. I painted the fabric, you can't tell at all as I applied transfer foil with fusible web on top of that, after the paint had dried. I then applied one layer of a very pretty paper napkin. I think that you can see the foil shining through the napkin. For sure you can in real life. This layered fabric now has an very interesting feel to it. It would make a good book cover. There are a lot of possibilities with this technique.
